Isn't the description you posted for the upcoming episode "Closet" actually a description of the already aired episode "Blinded"?

Wow - yes you are correct. It seems my source also had bad info. I'm removing the episode summary from this blog for this episode until I can find the correct info.

Thanks for the good catch!
